October is usually not the best month to come to Koh Lanta. The monsoon season is in full effect by this point of the year and there is typically heavy and prolonged rain on Koh Lanta during October. Of course, there is the chance of lots of sunshine too, but you need to be prepared for it to be wet.
October is usually the end of the monsoon season too – by the end of the month, the skies have cleared and temperatures are lovely and cool. Sometimes the rainy weather can drag on into November, but usually October marks the end of Koh Lanta’s low season and with the start of November the beginning of the high season.
If you take the gamble on the weather clearing up in the last week of October, you can enjoy big discounts on both villa and hotel prices before the high season officially begins on November 1st and prices go up by anywhere from 30 to 50 per cent.
There are some great Koh Lanta hotel deals during low season, which is great if you are looking to stay somewhere nice and are not too worried about the weather. Visit Booking.com’s Koh Lanta hotels page to see what special offers are available for your specific dates.
